2016 Ram 2500 - Miami, FL

 

Working in a profession that requires heavy labor can be made significantly worse if you don't have the proper ride. It may sound silly, but a worker's mode of transportation can actually be the perfect companion for a worksite. Owners can rely on an abundance of interior room or equipment space, and the powerful engines will allow them to drive through any terrain or haul any heavy cargo. You may even find yourself with a comfortable interior, making the morning commute a bit more bearable.

The 2016 Ram 2500 delivers all of these factors, and a whole lot more. The pickup's three engines offer optimal power specs, and the accompanying mechanics allow for one of the best driving experiences in the class. Meanwhile, the interior and exterior offer several convenience features that will improve anyone's ride. Best of all, the vehicle is incredibly reliable, so you may not be seeking another pickup for at least another decade.

There are few trucks on the market that can offer this combination of features, which makes the 2016 Ram 2500 the ultimate pickup.

Performance

The Ram 2500's trio of engine options perfectly complement the pickup's rugged and muscular presence. The three units all offer intense power specs, but they each differ in their own specific way. The iconic 5.7-liter V8 engine is known for its dependability, while the 6.4-liter is commended for its efficiency. Of course, the hulking 6.7-liter offers the best power of the bunch.

Engineers were also clever to refine the engine's accompanying mechanics to better adapt to this amount of power. An elaborate suspension system and dependable transmission choices guarantee that owners are receiving the best driving experience possible.

Three Impressive Engine Options

The beloved 5.7 HEMI V8 engine will be returning for 2016, providing an efficient and dependable option that still doesn't skimp on power. Thanks to the Variable Valve Timing technology, drivers can expect 383 horsepower and 400 pounds-feet of torque. These specs certainly contribute to the unit's 13,890-pound towing capacity. Best of all, the 10,000-mile oil change interval means owners won't have to continually have their motor serviced.

The 6.4-liter HEMI V8 provides Best-in-Class horsepower (410) and torque (429 pounds-feet) from the gas-run unit, resulting in a 16,320-pound towing capacity. However, the unit makes a name for itself thanks to its efficiency, as the Fuel Saver Technology will manipulate the system to provide optimal economy.

The 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel Engine is the star of the bunch, delivering a variety of Best-in-Class capabilities. The 370 horsepower and 800 pounds-feet of torque play a role in the Best-in-Class 17,980-pound towing capacity. The durable engine only has to be serviced every 15,000 miles, and the class-exclusive smart diesel exhaust brake will deliver optimal performance.

Reliable Mechanics

Considering the powerful engine options, engineers included several mechanical attributes that contribute to the Ram's easy handling and drivability. The five-link coil rear suspension is a prime example, as the system enhances the vehicle's control on any type of terrain. The three-link front suspension will make for a smoother ride, and the rear air suspension will manipulate the operations to account for a higher payload or trailer.

Meanwhile, the six-speed automatic and manual transmissions will positively impact performance and efficiency. A number of additional exterior features can be included to capitalize on the incredible towing capacity, like the Trailer Harness Connector or the Heavy-Duty Hooks. The Tow/Haul Mode Select may be the most appreciated inclusion, as the technology allows you to manipulate whatever cargo is being hauled behind the 2500.

Style

The 2500 is certainly one of the most stunning pickups in the class. However, when designing the 2016 model, engineers were clearly prioritizing convenience and comfort over style. While the sharp exterior edges or the meticulously-designed cabin are certainly nice, owners will quickly grow to appreciate the other amenities.

For instance, the exterior can feature the advanced RamBox Cargo Management System, allowing owners to better organize their cargo. Meanwhile, the interior offers a Rear Back-Up Camera, which will prevent a driver from accidently hitting a stationary object.

Style is certainly welcomed, and the Ram 2500 delivers in that respect. Still, it's the interior and exterior convenience features that are the true stars of the 2016 model.

Exterior Features

Several exterior amenities help make the 2500 the perfect workplace companion. The Class-Exclusive RamBox Cargo Management System provides drivers with an easy way to manage and secure all of their equipment. The lockable box will keep all of your cargo safe and protected, and it's also incredibly easy to access. Of course, drivers will still have plenty of space in which to work, considering the amount of room in the truck's bed.

The Tailgate Lift Assist function will come in handy when you're attempting to load any heavy cargo, as lowering the door is made significantly easier. The Box Rail Caps will help reduce any scratches to the vehicle's exterior, while the Power Side Exterior Mirrors include heated defrosters, providing drivers with maximum visibility on those cold mornings.

Interior Features

The interior is equally as stylish as the 2500's exterior. Similarly, the interior functions are still more about convenience and comfort than aesthetics. For example, the UConnect 8.4-inch full-color touchscreen is the largest in the class, and the system will allow drivers to access a variety of helpful applications. This includes an extensive navigation system, meaning a driver will never have issues finding their worksite. The unit will also allow the driver to access the ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera System and the Cargo-View Camera.

Even the multiview display behind the steering wheel is high-tech, offering a largest-in-class seven-inch display. The unit provides the driver with access to a wealth of information, including vehicle diagnostics. Even the upholstery delivers convenience, as the work-grade vinyl is easy to clean and durable, meaning it will withstand any of the grime you may trek into your truck.

Reliability

If you're going to be investing money into a new ride, you're going to want to be assured that it will last. Thanks to the 2500's accompanying warranty, you should be able to rely on your pickup for at least half a decade. Plus, the rugged and sturdy design can overcome any obstacle and inconvenience while also keeping the truck's occupants safe and secure.

Five-Year Warranty

You can rest assured that your Ram 2500 will last you for several years. The brand includes a five-year/100,000-mile Diesel Powertrain Limited Warranty on their diesel-powered trucks. The gas-powered 2500s are accompanied by a five-year/60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty.

Sturdy Design

The 2500 has been designed to overcome any obstacles it may encounter. The high-strength 50 KSI steel frame is accompanied by eight cross-members, which include either the rear axle (for a gooseneck) or a fifth-wheel hitch.

This design makes for a lighter, more nimble driving experience, but it doesn't compromise any of the vehicle's safety. The frame is still extremely strong, and the body will surely protect any occupants in the event of a collision.
